fishing-MexicoThree weeks ago I was waiting for Granny to finish physical therapy for her shoulder when I got a text from Team USA Fly Fishing manager and sponsor, Jerry Arnold.  Jerry was checking up on Granny, but Jerry also threw in, “If she’s doing well you should consider joining me in Mexico first week of November”.


I knew it was a long shot but when I told Granny my predicament she said she’ll be fine.  Luckily, seeing her progress since that text, I’ve made the right choice.  I’m off to Mexico today!


Casa-Blanca-fishingI left my house at 4:45 AM on a dark but pleasant drive and caught the Idaho Falls to Salt Lake City flight.  Then from Salt Lake I flew directly to Cancun.  I popped from customs and met Jerry and we hustled to a charter flight and flew 45 minutes south to the private landing strip of Casa Blanca Fly Fishing Lodge.

permit-fishingJerry and I are here for a week and will enjoy six days of fishing.  The flats here are full of bonefish as well as good numbers of permit and the occasional tarpon.  Naturally there are a bunch of other cool fish as well that don’t get all the glory.  You know I’ll be after them all.  This should be a great week!

    Hi Jeff, looks like you been having a fun fall. That snapper on insta looked great.
    I’m heading to Mexico this March and curious if you had any diy advice for shore fishing a bit north of Ascension Bay. I’ll get a day guided in further south but I was curious about the beach fishing between Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. We’re staying at the north end of Akumal and I should have a point/beach/point to fish after a quick snorkel across a cenote. I’ll bring an 8 and 9 and a spinning rod, and too many flies. Whatya think?

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
